Gundam Seed Zaft

So the uniform is pretty simple, but the boots are going to be hard, as there are not many knee high white boots for males. Anyone have tips?

Ah, good old Gundam Seed

Well, if you can't find boots that are white colored, there's the possibility of getting some boots that are black (or whatever color they may be) and making some white colored covers for them. However, I've never tried such a thing, so I can't say much about how to go about that...

I found some replicas on Ebay some time ago and they seemed bang on.

Check Amazon. Even though I'm a girl I got white gogo boots and they worked pretty well for the costume (even though I retired it..I plan on bringing it back...One day lol)

I don't know how good cosplayhouse is but:CosplayHouse

Ebay 1

Ebay 2

There are more ebays. This is just two of them.

Pretty much any custom zaft boot bought online will cost a bit. A cheaper way would be to make boot covers or to re color the shoe (It escapes me how this is done but people on here have done that and there is a special paint for it).

Actually, depending on the sizing of your foot, you could very well just get some women's boots. That's what I did and it works great, but I'm fortunate enough to have feet just barely narrow enough. For the black, I just used electric tape. It you observe them closely, that's obviously not going to produce as good a result as painting the things, but for the purposes of pictures and eye-level, it works well enough and it is removable for storage purposes or for reusing the boots in another way later if you should need them.

Actually, I've got the pair I originally used in the Marketplace right now, since they were actually a tick too big and I finally got around to buying another pair the next size down. I don't mean to make a shameless plug, but if your feet are the right size, do feel free to look the listing up. If the sizing is off but you think you can make the style work, I've got a link to the manufacturer's page on there too, so you could use it to shop around for the right size.

The brand of my shoe is "Funtasma" You can try to go from there. They have different heights. 2 inches- 4 inches etc. I got taller because I'm short but as I said, they have shorter heights.

Also don't forget to get a non-shiney boot. I don't think Zaft wears shiney white boots XD
